I'm back with a sneak peek and a new template

Here I am finally blogging....I have been trying to do this post for 3 days but tiredness and pain kept me from finishing it.
As far as I know my surgery went well....but it will still be several weeks before I know if it was successful. In the mean time, I am on smooth/pureed food for 4 weeks, then soft food for 2 to 4 weeks. I am finding this a challenge by itself. I can not bring myself to vitamize meat, chicken or whole meals. So, if anyone has any great tasting pureed food or smooth soup recipes, I would love to try them.

Just a reminder about my retiring sale where you can save 50% on retiring products until November 30th.
Get them here at Gotta Pixel.
Unfortunately Pickleberrypop is still offline because changing servers is taking much longer than planned!
Here's just a few of my items which are retiring soon.

I also have a new collection coming soon....

I haven't given away a template for a while, so I turned one of my recent layouts into one to share. It's a simple one so your photos are kept as the main focus.

Sorry link expired.

Feel better soon! As I read your post I am sitting here eating a green smoothie (loads of recipes online) that I threw together and puréed. In sorry, I eyeball all the ingredient amounts, but in mine this morning (and it changes all the time!) I used:

Lare spoonful plain Greek yogurt
Some milk
Protein powder (optional but I need protein)
Baby carrots (so sweet!)
Half banana (cause I had one. Avocado good too)
Handful frozen chopped spinach
Handful frozen berries
Some walnuts (totally optional)

That's it! The protein powder has sweetener in it so I don't add more. Some people add OJ for sweet too.

Good luck!

Glad to hear you are on the mend. Thank you for the template. Looking forward to the full reveal :)
I love purees fruits and veggie meal, LOL, weird, i know. I have them daily.
Another treat I've had since a child is...cold cooked rice, add some brown or white sugar and some milk or cream, & puree it, yum. Kidney beans are a great replacement for meat, minus their shell LOL, they mash up pretty good. Oh and pureed potatoes with herbs and butter, oh my, I am getting hungry, LOL.
Stay on the mend.
